So, as quick as a flash my Hammer Hunter 117grn .277 have arrived in NZ. Great service.

I have 2 good loads for my XBolt .270wsm with 129 grn. Barnes LRX, 20 thou off lands, with R17 and R26. I'm guessing that those loads would be good starting points??
Run the rl26. We loaded a Winchester 270 wsm the other day and got 3600 fsp with the 117g Hammer Hunter. This was with some Win nickel brass. Not sure I like it. Start at 68g and work up.

I tried 2 first up loads with the 117 Hammer Hunters today in the XBolt 270wsm. 20 thou off lands and top end R19 loads. 2 loads x 3rounds. Both shot .5" @ 100. No pressure signs. Higher charge chrono'd at 3450 fps (22" barrel). Happy with that.
So sorted in 6 shots. Wonderful.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
